10 Times Strikingly Similar Movies Came Out in the Same Year

"Have you ever noticed two movies that seem the same? Maybe you're not even sure which is which or if you've seen one or the other.
Hollywood has a long history of competition, which sometimes means producing a movie to outdo a rival studio. For that reason, Stacker compiled a list of 10 occasions in which two movies that told the same, or an eerily similar, story came out in the same year. More than a few films on our list went into production to capitalize on or compete with another movie's influence.
That said, even films with a remarkably similar premise, like animated ant colonies or aerial dogfights, turn out completely different by the time they're in theaters. A few movies on our list, like "Top Gun" and "Zero Dark Thirty," are way more popular and acclaimed than the films they resemble that premiered the same year."
